Food Scanner is here to help you and your family make healthier food and drink choices.

We are using Augmented Reality within the app that brings to life what’s inside your food and drink right in front of your eyes! There are certain limitations depending on what device you have and if your device supports ARCore. If it doesn’t not to worry we will show you a 3D scenario instead so you won’t miss out on all the fun.

The app is based on the most widespread data available to us. We're continuously working to improve it and we're adding more and more products all the time.

The nutrient data in this app is supplied by Brand Bank and Food Switch.

The number of sugar cubes, sat fat and salt sachets shown in app are based on grams per pack/100g/ml/portion when that information is available.

The weight of one sugar cube is equal to 4 grams
The weight on one sat fat lump is equal to 1 gram
The weight of one salt sachet is equal to 0.5 grams

Not good, just uninstalled this app 15 mins after installing it! I scanned 2 healthy foods, and the swap recommendation came up with swaps that were less healthy! The algorithms used in this app are too simplistic and misleading to be given credibility.

To see sugar and fat in sugar cubes and lumps of fat is truly mind-blowing. I knew things were bad, but I didn't think they were that bad! I'm not so sure on the options however. One suggestion was worse in fat, one worse in sugar but still visually alarming.

The app just doesn't work. You line up the product and take 10 minutes for it to scan. Most likely come up with "we don't have this product, can you help us" ect. All I did was scan a milk bottle 😳. The design of the layout did look good, and could have been easy to use.... Only if it worked. I did look at the comments after downloading and I see I'm not the only one who's seem to be struggling with the scanning. I do hope they fix the bug, this app could achieve so much
